Scholarships

Excited by the idea of doing a research degree but wondering how to support yourself financially? Research degree scholarships enable you to focus on your research without needing to do paid work.

Scholarships are available for both domestic and international students looking to undertake a research degree, and are normally tax-free for full-time students. They are available to students enrolling in the University's areas of research concentration and research strength.

Other grants and awards may also be available while studying – for example, to support you to present your research at national or international conferences, or to publish your research.

Applications for scholarships are part of the online application for research degrees admission.
